Designboom shop sucks!

This is a sad story of my "History of Folding Chairs" poster which i've ordered from Designboom website. It made me extremely sad and then extremely angry with Designboom! I've bought it for more than 1000 INR ( which is a lot for two posters).The broken package which you can see in the picture is a good exaple of bad design coming from - Designboom!
I mean can't they have a better pack to save the inside poster? I don't think they can just blame it on postage/ transport, etc. since they better know how roughly things are handled when they come to India from Italy!!
I'm really disappointed with Designboom team! I mean, what is there in a poster if it gets crumpled exaclty at the centre. Some of the images and the text is also distroyed because of the folds!

Only a few days back when i heard the sad news of Prof. R.K.Joshi's demise, i was wondering what's happening in the Indian typography scene. And today i hear about the Typography Day 2008 at IDC, mumbai. The conference is scheduled to be on 28th & 29th of March 2008.

Among the Big names are Mahendra Patel (our own MCP), Vikas Satwalekar and Achyut Palav.I really wish to attend !

Talking about Prof. R.K.Joshi, you can find his interview at typeradio.
